Former NBA player and motivational speaker Walter Bond served as the keynote speaker at the Bright Ideas Awards Luncheon on Thursday, November 6 at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas. During his speech Bond talked about his college and professional basketball careers and provided an inspirational message to the 300 people in attendance.
After not starting a game in his college basketball career Bond worked his way into a starting job with the Dallas Mavericks from 1992-1995. How was he able to do this? Bond credits sound fundamentals, focus and work ethic for his success, and uses those skills to motivate audiences as a professional motivational speaker.
Some of the tips he has for potential business leaders are to know what they are going to listen to, avoid crossing from confidence to arrogance, and to maintain likeability because a likeable person attracts other people and are more apt to receive mercy when they mess up.
Bond is a master communicator and ultimately believes that communication is key to success both in the business world, world of athletics, and in life. Each time he speaks he stresses the ideals that have made him successful with the hopes of creating peak performers.
